Charleston, South Carolina | April 18—21, 2018


Contact is NTA’s exclusive buyer event: a perfect blend of business, education and fun in an intimate setting. It’s focused on in-depth education and fosters buyer-to-buyer conversation and partnerships. Contact allows tour operators, travel agents and sponsoring suppliers and DMOs to connect, create and collaborate in a three-day program.

As everyone knows, all work and no play is not what life’s all about. So Contact isn’t all about sitting in a classroom, we like to get out, see the sights and have some fun, too. Registration for Contact ’18 in Charleston is now open!

Get ready for Charleston and beyond by checking out all of our future events dates!
